Like mother, like daughter

16 May

If you follow A Few Things From My Life you’ll already know that Veronika (the artist behind Sarah & Bendrix) is one creative lady. But this week, it was this charming family portrait painted by her young daughter Anya that caught my attention…

{both A Few Things From My Life}

I’ve posted before about how much I love to see children’s paintings displayed as genuine artwork and think giving a child a proper canvas and quality paints to work with is a great idea. It takes a bit of bravery on the grown-up’s part, but children are naturally unselfconscious when it comes to art (when did you ever hear a child say “I can’t draw”?) and by giving them the chance to experiment and just a little guidance you might just end up with an abstract masterpiece like this one.

If you want to have a go, Veronika’s written a lovely post describing how she and Anya created their special family portrait here and you can buy inexpensive canvases here.
